Με αφορμή την αναγγελία του θανάτου του ανθρωπολόγου – εθνολόγου Claude Levi Strauss (Bρυξέλλες, 28 Νοεμβρίου 1908 – Παρίσι, 30 Οκτωβρίου 2009)

Ενα rap για τη γενοκτονία των Ινδιάνων…

«Them devils came to the village posing as priests stealing children from their homes took and placed ’em in a school to replace and undo what they labeled as savage before the gates ya long hair sheared tossed in a pile like it was garbage stripped down from ya custom attire ya skin scrubbed till it bleed put his clothes in a fire and bury his items replace ’em with ours give ’em a bible teach ’em to read bleach ’em indeed if he speaks one word of his tongue no songs sung from the homeland wich he learned as a young buck from a old sage in the village to a school made of brick were they plan was to kill ’em save the man was the modo sodomized dramatized gettin beat grueling rations when he eat many died cuz they starved no one notified buried in the yard for not following the cross or officials for my ancestors ya heart beats thru me.

They took his son from his home yeah they pulled ’em apart / they took her daughter from her home they were forced to depart amongst the others on a train they called the Iron Horse another Native Fell victim to their holocaust.

She came from a family of five she was 9 at the time when they came to pay the people a visit with a man who translated the language they promised beautiful things if she attended without mentioning the evil they imposed his hands clammy and they cold as he shakes with a smile on his face now she on her way to carlisle with no knowledge of her fate he tell her calm down come now we at the gate she see the faces of her schoolmates saddened and broke they sat her down cut her hair and made her wear proper clothes to look civilized no more livin like ya tribe Lye soap if you try to speak a word of ya tongue ya mouth washed was the punishment amongst others gurls raped and made mothers babys born babys murdered women sterilized a act of genocide muthafuckin ya heard me Fuck the government cuz we didnt die we survived.

They took his son from his home yeah they pulled em apart / They took her daughter from her home they were forced to depart amongst the others on a train they called the Iron Horse another native fell victim to their holocaust.

  • «Δεν αγαπώ τον κόσμο μέσα στον οποίο τελευτώ…το ανθρώπινο είδος–λόγω του πλήθους του–ζει μία κατάσταση εσωτερικής δηλητηρίασης…πολλά είδη εξαφανίζονται απ’ αυτές τις τόσο τρομακτικές απερημώσεις» Claude Levi Strauss, 2005

Kαι μια συνέντευξή του το 1972 στο γαλλικό ARTE…
